What if All the Kids are White, by Louise Olsen Dermen-Sparks, Patricia G. Ramsey, and Julie Olsen Edwards. This book is geared towards educators, but is a great resource for all. We found the summary of current research on kids and racism especially eye-opening.
Bringing this bestselling guide completely up-to-date, the authors address the current state of racism and anti-racism in the United States (including the election of the first African-American president); review recent child development research; discuss state standards and NCLB pressures on early childhood teaching; and more. The text includes teaching strategies, activities for families and staff, reflection questions, and updated organizational and website resources.
